Default figured out my trans problem

My 99 TJ would pop out of first gear every once in a while, usually while accelerating slowly. It would scare the hell out of me! Well I was driving it the other day, and noticed when I put it in first gear that the shifter moved the console just a little bit.
Well it turn out the console was putting just enough pressure on the shifter to throw it out of gear at just the right RPM, like shifting without using the clutch.
I took all the screws out of the console, and moved it forward as far as it would go, and redrilled the holes. It hasn't popped out of gear in two days.
It actually did it less with the trans drop in, it now has a SYE, and the trans is back up where it's supposed to be. I wish all my problems were this easy to fix!
